Ginger is an indispensable spice that's used in the Indian cuisine. It has a pungent and sharp aroma that adds a robust spicy flavour to various foods and drinks. In fact, it is a common ingredient that has long been used in various home remedies to treat and manage health conditions. While it is used commonly as a herbal treatment for ailments like nausea and indigestion, it is known to help manage blood sugar levels and control diabetes. Diabetes is a condition where the pancreas is not able to produce insulin, a hormone that manages blood sugar levels, or the body is not able to use this hormone to its best ability. Ginger helps manage diabetes by stimulating the production of insulin. We tell you more about ginger's ability to manage this lifestyle condition naturally and how to use it in your daily diet.
Make sure you consult a doctor before switching to this home remedy as consuming medications and ginger simultaneously may drop blood sugar levels significantly.
